From a very young age I have been fascinated with giving and receiving massages!

I grew up in former British Guyana, coming from a family of East Indian descent in which it was customary that babies and young children were massaged consistently from right after they are born.

A few years ago, as my older daughter approached her high school years, I began delving deeper into the practice of massage and decided to become trained and make it my work. I have chosen to become an Ayurveda Massage Therapist. It has been a joy to learn more about this kind of massage that has been practiced for thousands of years in India, and has been a wonderful process of reconnecting with my roots, practicing familiar techniques from my childhood. 

I have completed a course at Anand’s School of Wellness as well as Ayurveda Yoga Massage training with Despina Psarra in Greece and London. I look forward to the opportunity to bring relaxation and peace to my clients through this wonderful massage therapy.
